we got the 2007 liberty turbo too and it took a fair bit of screwing around with subaru for us to get it

Congrats mate :thumbsup: It is a beautiful car thats... we would have loved it.. but my old man just didn't want to wait...

Its well worth all that screwing around though :p enjoy man :thumbsup:

Theres these three kits you can get... XA, XB, and XC ... Each increases power, changes breaks, suspension etc etc.

The XC ($6500 Approx.) kit is a bigger turbo etc... Alot of forester owners end up going for these kits... And the forester looks awesome a little lowered as well. So the potential is there :p but yeah, its still a nice car

google Legacy GT mods

lol, your in trouble if they are quoting rwkw. It doesn't matter, I'm simply telling you that there is far more potential in the Liberty...not that it matters now.

Hahhahaha, the first night I get to take it out alone i might head to chappel, only coz i get a few looks in my vt, so i wnoder how id go in a brand new turbo lol...

hopefully we'll have it by this weekend... hopefully :( Then i might take a bit of a cruise up ferntree gully, or along the beach.

Aparently for the first 10,000ks, the engine capacity is restricted and then at the service they program it to full power or something... to help prevent it being thrashed when its being run in... Apparenlty theyre really sluggish and stuff for the first little while, but then after 10,000ks its all good, everyone who has one has told us not to change the exhaust till after 10,000ks coz it gets heaps deeper and louder :D

Plus the extra large sunroof will be good for looking up at the starts.... from the back seat...................... lol yes yes its dads car.. but saturdays its mine! (I still have to run that idea by him though lol)

I work for subaru and there is no restriction or program mod to be done at the 10,000km service to give full power the resaon that you will find it to be down on power is the engine/driveline has very tight cleances and will take time to lossen up we have sold lots of xt foresters and ones that have been pushed not abused from new go great they must run 98 octane or better fuel as they will run s#*t good luck with the car matie if you wont somemore grut out of it go and see vince at docklands he no's his stuff
